Which phone charges the fastest? ASUS ZenFone 2, Galaxy S6 in the lead

What the OnePlus 2 DOESN’T have, and why that matters

Ok, so the cat’s out of the bag, so to speak. The OnePlus 2 – made by the same guys who made the OnePlus One (haha) – is out in the open, the pricing is out in the open as well, and we had a short time to go hands on with it. It is by far, the most ridiculous piece of smartphone hardware you can get for a price range that starts at around USD$329.

Samsung Belgium turns chargers into chairs, hammocks in park

What do you with wired chargers when you don't need them anymore? Most of us would just think of throwing them away or giving them to people whose devices are still dependent on that.
